As you are probably aware, my blogs cover a wide range of topics, from standing on my soapbox to my latest offer.
And I’m always grateful for feedback.
As you are aware, I enjoy chatting.
While I was still in South Africa, I had to have my classes evaluated on a regular basis.
While I received 10/10 for the majority of the assessment, I received extremely low marks twice.
I was once chastised for not being sensual enough, and when I asked what that even meant, I was told to wear less clothes and sound more sensual rather than bossy.
Okay, I took that into consideration.
The second time I met a lady from quite high up in the pilates world, she asked me why I wasn’t teaching every exercise only for 10 reps, as Joseph Pilates intended.
My response was quite simple for me at the time.
If I have 20-30 people in front of me in the gym and I want to walk around and correct everyone, 30 reps are usually insufficient.
But now that I’m teaching via Zoom, there are far fewer people in my Zoom room, and I’m not walking among them.
I am a firm believer that everyone should participate in the exercise.
And while I’m queuing up my clients to correct them, ten isn’t always enough to feel the words.
‘I discovered it, and I can feel it.’
That, in my opinion, also means that the next time you train into that specific muscle, you will know where it is because you felt it.
Also, if you tell me after 10 reps that you can’t feel anything, I have the opportunity to reposition and correct you, so don’t get frustrated that Pilates isn’t working for you!
I hope that makes sense, and if not, let’s talk.
I’ll leave you with a quote I discovered.
“It’s never too late to become who you could have been.”
And with that, I cordially invite you to a free trial class.
